Yorman Zapata was one of the most outstanding players in the campaign that ended with Magallanes as champion of the Primera B and returning to the highest categories after four decades of absence.
With four goals and 27 starts, the 22-year-old Colombian took a step forward in his career. One that hopes to consolidate 2023 with a leap that he already envisions. “I want to nationalize, since it is easier for them to hire me because I would not occupy a foreigner quota, I would like to be in Colo Colo or Catholic University. I dream of reaching the Chilean National Team.”
Zapata, yes, is not in a hurry. He is clear that the last step in the season is missing. “Now I am focused on Magallanes. After the Chile Cup I will analyze if there is an offer with my representative. I don’t know if Colo Colo wants to take me, “he said in a conversation with DirecTV Sports. He also reveals that “Catholic University is the owner of a percentage of my pass.”
The young man was unknown before this year, however, he landed in Chile a long time ago. “I did not play in America or in Deportivo Cali in Colombia for resources. I had no money for the tickets. I came to Chile because a representative was interested in me and brought me to the U20 of Universidad Católica”.
At that stage he coincided with Gustavo Quinteros. “Catholic’s inferiors have a lot of quality. When Quinteros was there, the assistant told me not to leave, but they couldn’t give me resources.”
